MTV in Houston? YES

MTV will be visiting Houston’s southwest side this afternoon to film students of the universally acclaimed YES College Preparatory Schools, who will be hosting a fundraiser to battle malaria.

The “Stayin’ Alive” dance, sponsored by Malaria No More, will feature local DJ Michael 5000 Watts. MTV plans to air footage from the event on April 25, Malaria Awareness Day, as part of MTV News, and online.

Malaria No More, a grassroots movement created by a group of high school students in Florida, hopes to raise $10 million during the next few years at school dances and other events to provide life-saving bed nets for two million vulnerable children in Africa. – Todd Spivak
